RASPBERRY....

The wife is one of those frontier types---wants to bake bread, grow things, make jam. Every summer she picks a zillion berries and we measure them out and freeze them until we get a chance to make jam, usually dozens of jars, enough for a year's worth of PB and J. She dug through the freezer yesterday and made 2 batches, YUM!



A couple o' pots here....

I wondered when you were going to make that jam. You usually make it on Thanksgiving, don't you?

Looks good!

There's nothing better than homemade jam. Thanks for the reminder that I need to get last year's berries out of the freezer and made into jam so there's room for this year's berries.

Could life be any better for Gary? NOPE: he has a frontier woman who makes him sweet stuff. I have never thought to make jam, but then again, I can't even grow a berry down here. But I got some 'maters.
Love the worm bowl..he is so cute.

Does Maude make the jelly or does she leave the skins on and make jam?

Jay said...

Homemade jam is awesome. I haven't had any since my grandmother turned 90 and stopped making it.

That inchworm is so adorable!!
And so, of course, is Maude.♥

Our neighbor gave us a couple jars of homemade jam after the boys helped to shovel her out last month. YUM!!

' knor knor' ---> that's what pigs say in Dutch.
I think in this case it means ' i like being here on this beautiful pot!'
(no idea what sound a caterpillar makes...)

Love your work and your blog, been reading it for a while now.

hopefully i'll be in pottery-blogland soon!

What is on Maude's oven mitts? Are those dinos?

Gary's third pottery blog said...

I think one is a dino and the other a dog, for oven mitts :)
